Prodog, you sounded like someone into SchH and protection training. Glad to have you joined here. Hopefully you guys can get something running in Klang area.
It is true that theories needs to be used in practical to see and understand it better. We always must practise lest we could not understand its gist.
Colin, I would put that a trainer is so important that he is the single most important factor in deciding if a good dog turns out great or downright poops. The best trainer though can only bring any dog to its genetics best and nothing more. Handler in this instance needs a very experienced helper whom is actually the trainer to read the dog from the different prespective. Understressing the dog will create disinterest while everstressing will destroy him. A handler can both creates bond or destroys the bond at the same time just to let you know if wrong approach is used. Dog training is not exact science and needs plenty of thinking, planning and creativity. The training steps must be decided by each and every individual dog and not a training step routine as decided by a handler without looking at the dog's agenda. If these can be understood, then it is time to enjoy the training sessions with our partners the furbie
